Photos challenge: week 5

As a way to help our CU Independent photographers develop their skills and expand their creative approaches to photography, we have formed an assignment that is both fun and challenging. Each week, one CUI staff photojournalist is randomly given five unrelated and completely different topics or concepts. It is then up to the photographer to get five unique photos — one for each of their given topics.

This is meant to be a challenge. The photographers can interpretate the theme any way they wish as long as the photo can relate to it. We hope to challenge them to think outside the box. To make others think twice about the topic. To get the photo no one would think of.

This week features photos taken by photojournalist James Bradbury. His given topics/concepts were pattern, curves, repetition, solitude and wind.

Also, see last week’s photos here.
